OBJECTIVES: Our main objective was to evaluate the percentage of patients under anti-osteoporotic treatment (OT) at the time of hip fracture (HF) and one and four years after the HF event. We compared these results with the percentage of patients who should be under treatment at all three stages, according to the recently published Portuguese cost-effectiveness recommendations (PCER) for OT. Data regarding occurrence of new fragility fractures and mortality were also determined, one and four years after the HF event...

OBJECTIVE: Reports about the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) promoter-2518A/G polymorphism and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) were controversial. This study aimed to assess the association between MCP-1 promoter-2518A/G polymorphism and SLE via meta-analysis. METHODS: Eligible studies were identified by searching the PubMed database for studies published before September 2015. Thirteen studies and data from 2,654 patients with SLE and 2,626 healthy controls were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify potential key candidate genes and uncover their potential mechanisms in rheumatoid arthritis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The gene expression profiles of GSE12021, GSE55457, GSE55584 and GSE55235 were downloaded from the gene expression omnibus database, including 45 rheumatoid arthritis and 29 normal samples. The differentially expressed genes between the two types of samples were identified with the Linear Models for Microarray Analysis package using R language...

OBJECTIVE: To translate and culturally adapt the Oxford Shoulder Score (OSS) to the European Portuguese language, and to test its reliability (internal consistency, reproducibility and measurement error) and validity (construct validity). METHODS: The OSS Portuguese version was obtained through translations, back-translations, consensus panels, clinical review and cognitive pre-test. Portuguese OSS, Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaires, and the visual analogue scales of pain at rest [VAS rest] and during movement [VAS movement] were applied to 111 subjects with shoulder pain (degenerative or inflammatory disorders) and recommended for physical therapy...

OBJECTIVE: Although the prevalence of peripheral and extra-articular disease in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) has been assessed in many studies, data on non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) is scanty. The aim of this study was first, to compare radiographic-axSpA/AS (r-axSpA/AS) and nr-axSpA concerning peripheral arthritis and extra-articular manifestations (EAMs), and second, to assess potential differences between patient subgroups with or without EAMs regarding disease burden...

IIntroduction: Sjögren's syndrome in childhood is a rare autoimmune disease and mostly under-diagnosed. The aim of this study is to highlight the importance of ultrasonographic assessment of the salivary glands in children with recurrent parotitis and positive autoantibodies. Two cases of ultrasonographic patterns typical of Sjögren's syndrome have been described below. Case 1: Female, 7 years old, reporting for 2 years recurrent parotitis, xerophthalmia, xerostomia, polyarthralgia and fever. Immunological tests were positive for antinuclear antibodies, rheumatoid factor, anti-SSA/Ro and anti-SSB/La...

BACKGROUND: Remission is the target for management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and intensification of immunosuppressive therapy is recommended for those that do not achieve this status. Patient global assessment (PGA) is the single patient reported outcome considered in the American College of Rheumatology/European League Against Rheumatism remission criteria, but its use as target has been questioned. The primary aim of this study is to assess whether excluding PGA from the definition of disease remission changes the association of disease remission with long-term radiographic damage and physical function in patients with RA...

BACKGROUND: Advances in osteoporosis (OP)case definition, treatment options, optimal therapy duration and pharmacoeconomic evidence in the national context motivated the Portuguese Society of Rheumatology (SPR) to update the Portuguese recommendations for the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis published in 2007. METHODS: SPR bone diseases' working group organized meetings involving 55 participants (rheumatologists, rheumatology fellows and one OP specialist nurse) to debate and develop the document...

OBJECTIVES: Early diagnosis and treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and axial Spondylarthritis (axial SpA) can limit the impact of disease outcomes. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a referral program on the identification of patients with RA and axial SpA. METHODS: This was an observational, prospective, randomized (by clusters) study conducted in Portugal to evaluate the impact of the implementation of a set of referral support actions (RSA). The study was divided in two sub-studies, the RA sub-study and the axial SpA sub-study...

Tumours formed from peripheral nerve sheaths are rare in the shoulder. We present the case of a 80-year-old female referred to an orthopaedic surgery clinic because of a large painless mass of the right shoulder, with one year of evolution. There was no history of trauma, involvement of any other joint or systemic complaints. Given the clinical and imagiological suspicion of a giant synovial cyst, the patient underwent complete surgical resection of the mass, which took place without any complications or functional impairment...

AIMS: Work impairment is one of the most important exploration and one of the aims of rheumatologists. We aimed to determine the risk factors for employment state and predictive factors of work outcomes using multi-dimensional measures in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in this comprehensive study. METHODS: One hundred patients with AS (31 females and 69 males) were included into this study. Demographic properties, local factors, disease activity (BASDAI), functionality (BASFI), spinal mobility (BASMI), radiologic stage (BASRI), quality of life (AS-QoL), cardiopulmonary involvement, exercise stress test and work outcomes were investigated and compared in employed and un-employed patients...

Objective To compare outcomes in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients initiating adalimumab (ADA), with short- and long-term disease duration and to evaluate the potential effect of concomitant conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (csDMARD) or glucocorticoids. Methods Analyses included adult PsA patients registered in the Rheumatic Diseases Portuguese Register (Reuma.pt) between June 2008-June 2016 who received ADA for ≥3 months. Psoriatic Arthritis Response Criteria (PsARC) response, tender and swollen joint count, inflammatory parameters, patient (PtGA) and physician global assessment (PhGA), Disease Activity Score-28 joints (DAS28), and Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) were compared between patients with <5 years of disease (early PsA) and those with ≥5 years of disease duration (late PsA)...
